Walt Disney Company's current CEO, Bob Iger, has announced this week that a new Disney streaming service is planned to launch at the end of 2019.

Many news outlets have speculated from various rumors on what the future of the Disney streaming service may hold. A popular audience of streaming services is, of course, millennials. Netflix is currently ranging from $8 - $15 a month. For a college student, this is doable. BUT between Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, Spotify, Apple Music, etc. we have enough monthly payments as it is. There's so much out there and we're already happy with what we're used to. What could make us add or switch to the new Disney streaming network?

1. A student discount.

Disney needs to not only be competitive with their pricing but allow a student discount for us brokey broke young adults to try it and love it. Do you know who didn't offer a student discount? YouTube Red. How many college students do you know with a YouTube Red account? Just saying.

2. The OG DCOMs for those good Throwback Thursday movie nights.

Zenon, Motocrossed, Cadet Kelly, Gotta Kick It Up, Read it and Weep... may I say more?

3. PLUS a DCOM Halloween moment with the best movies of all time.

ALL THE HALLOWEEN TOWN MOVIES + TWITCHES PLEASE AND THANK YOU!

4. Exclusive behind the scenes content of our favorite live action Disney movies.

Pirates of the Caribbean

The streaming service would lose interest in the actual Disney DVDs. Behind the scenes content about creating the films are the best parts of DVDs and allowing them to be featured in a streaming service would be a game changer. Who doesn't watch movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean and want to see what it was like creating it?

5. First access to any Disney film once it leaves theaters.

Once you see a Disney movie, you're going to want to see it again. The Disney streaming service should allow access to Disney films the moment it leaves theaters for some rewatches, or incase you were too busy to hit up the theaters.

6. Exclusive trailers and sneak peaks to upcoming projects.

Why see it first on YouTube when you can see it first on the Disney streaming service?

7. A wide variety of new and old Disney films, with a constant change in rotation so you never get bored.

As nice as it would be to have all Disney movies ever created just in one general location, it would be good to mix it up with monthly or seasonal changes to keep things interesting.

8. New Disney themed content tailored to all ages, not just the kiddos.

Big Hero 6: TV Show

It's no secret that Disney is a fan of taking their movies and turning them into television series, but don't forget about the Disney loving adults in the world who want some Disney themed content up to the their age level. (Like Once Upon a Time, but different. You're creative, work on it.)

9. Exclusive Disney documentaries about their history and parks.

Because who doesn't want to binge watch five Disneyland documentaries two days before they actually go to Disneyland?

10. More manly mans of Marvel.

AKA: More Chris Pratt.

I mean the other guys are way cool too and we want to see them, but Chris Pratt content is encouraged and appreciated.

11. Don't forget Star Wars, too.

Star Wars

It's not one of the world's biggest franchises for no reason. Don't only include the new Disney Star Wars but the whole series, please.

12. More kick-ass female girl power for when you need it the most.

Maleficent

Disney can always cure a low confidence mood.

13. Content that reminds us that love is real.

Ugh, my heart.

14. And that anything is possible.

Because that's what Disney is all about, right? Creating content to inspire and promote imagination and kindness? The Disney streaming service could provide all of that... and more.

15. Most importantly, did I mention the student discount?

Seriously, please don't over price this streaming service.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it).

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

If 'Hockey Is For Everyone,' Why Is Matt Dumba So Alone In Fighting For Racial Equality In The NHL?

If the NHL is using #WeSkateForEquality, why is Dumba alone in the fight for equality?

On Saturday, August 1, 2020, the National Hockey League resumed play for the first time since March 12, 2020. The season was paused due to the growing coronavirus (COVID-19) spread and a concern for the players contacting the virus and spreading it through the League. Fans and players sat and waited for the hockey season to resume, which took more than 140 days.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

What Your Favorite Rom-Com Says About You And Your Dream Guy

These movies are always there for us when we need them.

YouTube

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

Just Because You're Asked To Be In A Wedding, Doesn't Always Mean You Should Say Yes

If you can't invest time, money, and YOURSELF, maybe say no to the offer for the bride's sake!

Being in a wedding is a really big commitment. I personally think if you've never been in one before, you don't understand the time, money, and energy that goes into being a part of it.
